How do I get my list into Obo Priority?

All you need to get started is a list of the items you want to prioritize, and a list of the folks you want to get feedback from.

There are multiple ways to get your data into Obo Priority:

  • You can import your list from Jira
  • You can import your list from a spreadsheet
  • You can manually create the list by adding your items one at a time
  • You can cut and paste multiple items at the same time. Select the name field of the first blank item, then paste either a list of names, or two columns where the first item is the name, and the second is the description. Priority will create the entire list from this single paste
Or any combination of the above. Priority will append new items to the list as they are added.

What's different about Obo Value Surveys?

Obo Value Surveys are pre-built surveys that combine several statistical techniques, which is why they’re patent-pending. You use them with just a few clicks: pick your audiences, get a link, and send it via email, Slack, text, carrier pigeon, etc.

People take the surveys on any device.

Obo presents results for easy side-by-side comparison and calculates consolidated value scores that are easy to understand and use. Obo manages the entire survey process, including tabulating and presenting the results. And the surveys are fun and easy to take. Here’s a quick vid:
